ja'nel witt The rumor mill is swirling with gossip claiming that “Hell’s Kitchen” season 11 winner Ja’Nel Witt allegedly didn’t pass a drug test and won’t be taking the $250,000 job at the Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill in Las Vegas. 

There is actually an official explanation as to why she’s parting ways with the company other than this statement on Hell’s Kitchen Facebook page:

From ITV Studios: “The team at Hell’s Kitchen was incredibly excited about Ja’Nel Witt’s season win, and her opportunity to move in to a head chef position at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill in Vegas. Recent unforeseen personal circumstances will now unfortunately prevent her from accepting the position, which is a huge disappointment for Ja’Nel and all of us. She’s an incredible talent, and we all wish her much success with the next chapter of her career.”
